Things I wish I Knew in College

  1. Make Friends
    1. The friends you make in college will be your life long friends! It’s harder to make friends after you finish school (or for me at least). Get to know your classmates, roommates, dorm mates!
  2. Be Safe
    1. You’ll meet so many people in college. Those who will have a positive influence in your life and others who may not. For the ones who may not, be safe with your actions! Sometimes you will make choices that impulsive and regretful. Make sure that whatever you do, be safe about it. All in all, surround yourself with positive people.
  3. You don’t have to stick to your original major
    1. You are not obligated to stick with your major. Along the way, if you feel like it’s not right for you, change your major. Don’t stick to something that you don’t like. It will be more difficult in the future when you begin your career. Take a broad range of classes to find your passion.
  4. It’s not a race to finish
    1. You can finish in 5 years, or 6, or even 7. It’s not a race of who can finish their education first. Go at your own pace. Don’t rush finishing either. These are the days you cannot take back once you start “adulting”.
  5. Learn as much as you can- dont skip class… Study!
    1. Knowledge is power. If you (or someone) is paying for your classes, utilize the opportunity to learn (or even review) something. I’d rather be in class to learn than sleeping. Knowledge is something so powerful that no one can take away from you.┬áStudy and take your classes seriously!
